Eastside Group

The Eastside Group

In 2001, myself, sculptor Bill Friesen and poet/artist Joe Rosenblatt formed ourselves into the Eastside Group;
the east side refers to the east coast of Vancouver Island, where we all live. We started off with "The Bird Show" at the Oceanside gallery in Parksville, and followed up with a show at Qualicum Frameworks, Qualicum Beach. In 2003 we showed "Imaginary Friends" at the JCC in Vancouver, followed by exhibitions at the Fran Willis Gallery (Victoria) and "Mythic Archipelago" at the Maltwood Gallery (University of Victoria), the Amelia Douglas Gallery in New Westminster and the Sandstone Studio gallery on Gabriola Island. Our most recent show was "Angels and Demons" at Artfitterz Gallery in Nanaimo, Vancouver Island. Below are images of my work for our Angels show, followed by some images from our exhibition openings. Next show: "Art at the Beach", a group show at Joe Rosenblatt's home in Qualicum Beach.
